Canned Biscuit Donuts (I Kid You Not!)

Yes, these were made with a can of large buttermilk biscuits! I must say it was one quick and yummy breakfast!

I simple popped open the can (a can of 8 large biscuits, generic brand:) and then used a 1" circle cutter to make holes in the middle of each of them. Then I added them to about 1/2" of hot oil in a large skillet.

They fried about 30-45 seconds on each side, or until they were browned nicely. The holes browned more quickly than the donuts.

I laid them on paper towels to soak up some of the oil, then I rolled each one in powdered sugar. I hear cinnamon-sugar is good, too. We may try that next time. We are big fans of the powdered sugar though (makes you almost think your eating beignets!).

These didn't last any time at all around here. And they were absolutely divine with my hazelnut coffee! You've gotta try them~they're too easy not to make them!

They look like the real thing. I may have to give this a try.

I used to make these with my kids when they were little. They loved helping me. We used to put brown sugar and cinnamon in a brown bag, put the donuts in and shake the bag. They were delicious! :)

We made these all the time on Saturday mornings when I was growing up (when they didn't make the big biscuits in the cans like they do now!). Seeing that I'm 44 now, that's a long time! We just always used plain old white sugar. My favorites were the middles. I loved popping them in my mouth when they were done.

I used to make them when we were newly married, in college, and on a tight budget. I don't think I've ever made them for my kids, and seeing that my girls are 16, that's also a long time!

Thanks for the memories. I may have to try them again soon.

We've always done the cinnamon/sugar on our doughnuts. I'm going to have to try powdered sugar on these next time! They look yummy.
